Metoprolol withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol withdrawal symptoms

toprol

My thinking was that I was having withdrawls from not taking metoprolol but why the symptoms after almost two weeks from taking it? I am tempted to go back on the drug to alleviate these symptoms as they are kind scary. I do not want to be on this drug and feel there is no need for it. I have mild hypertension and proir to metoprolol was taking low dose of lisinopril which I am back on now.
The SVT symptoms had diminished at that time any way. My symptoms have never returned so far. If you are experiencing those symptoms again, I would ressume the metoprolol and discuss this with your doctor again. Sometimes it takes some trial and error before we can get it all right. My heart spasms took some time to get better, and I had to try a few meds before I got it right. I have taken 150mg daily of this drug without any adverse reactions for 6 years now.
Can I simply switch without fear of withdrawal symptoms from the metoprolol? His instructions were to stop taking the metoprolol when I start the new diltiazem. I was not aware that I might face withdrawal from metoprolol.
I took 2 different versions of metoprolol, Toprol (metoprolol tartrate) and Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate). The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.
I did 2 days on 40 mg of Propranolol and I had the same side-effects than on the metoprolol... and I guess it's not side-effects but anxiety symptoms that I experience. Also when I return on the Propranolol for 2 days at a bigger dose, my blood pressure and pulse rate wasn't under control at all, heart rate was in the high 80 sit at rest and 150 and more just walking in the house...
And finally, be aware that when you take either BBs or benzos on a regular basis, you should not simply stop taking them suddenly -- you really need to work with your doc to taper off since both can cause very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. These two classes of drugs can be very helpful, but I also feel they need to be managed and evaluated carefully on a case by case basis so that you get the best of the benefits and avoid the worst of the possible detrimental effects.
There's also been a couple times that I've woken up in the middle of the night or early morning really foggy headed and confused. I'm not sure now if I should continue taking the metoprolol or what I should do. I hear the withdrawal symptoms are terrible as well and I'm not sure if i'll be able to tell the difference between the withdrawal and the original problem.
I've heard you can have some bad withdrawal symptoms like blood pressure going up and I'm worried about that.
I am about to begin withdrawal of 50mg Metoprolol after 5 years addictions to it for blood pressure only. No heart issues. It has been used with 5mg Norvase - Calcium Channel Blocker. PCP's instructions are: 1. Stop the Norvase for 20 days to see if BP spikes. If not then proceed to: 2. Reduce from 50mg of Metoprolol twice a day to 25mg twice a day for one week. 3. Then, 1/2 a 25mg tab twice a day for one week. There was the expectation that there could or would be BP spikes. WHY?!
He overdosed himself on clonidine last week trying to stop the withdrawal symptoms long enough to sleep. Well, he nearly made it an eternal sleep. BP dangerously low and breathing very shallow with long breaks in between. I was up for most of 2 days checking on him. Adding mass quantities of alcohol and other things to the mix didn't help matters either.
does anyone know of any over the counter, or natural meds that will help with the withdrawal symptoms?? mainly its the physical aches and pains that im concerned with...stuff like aleve, and other otc pain meds never did anything for me really..and im going to be hurting enough when im off these just with the back pain alone...so any advice would be appreciate beyond comprehension...thank you.
Day 34; Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal Dear Friends; Well it's official I now have Bronchitis. I have to rest and prevent it from going into pneumonia. So no work this week. Which means no income. Which means money going out, no money coming in. A couple nights ago I stood and PRAYED ... "Just show me and send me what I need." So apparently HP needs me to rest, and not work and whatever the effects of that; I am still clean! I am still NOT on Tramadol! I said it before.
My second question regards SSRI withdrawal symptoms. After about a week off of zoloft I suddenly started feeling extreme anger. Over the last couple of days I've been dissociating a lot--my usual reaction to extreme emotions--and I feel full of rage. The other withdrawal symptoms--dizziness, lighthededness, crying jags--began almost immediately as I tapered off. I'm hoping the anger and aggression are related to withdrawal because these particular emotions are severe and unusual for me.
The more severe withdrawal symptoms have usually been limited to those patients who had received excessive doses over an extended period of time. Consequently, after extended therapy, abrupt discontinuation should generally be avoided and a gradual dosage tapering schedule followed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
If you stop suddenly, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, uncontrollable shaking, anxiety, changes in behaviors, and possible seizures, etc. 2.

My experience, my mom's, my neighbors and my docs as follows with TEVA generics which do not work or cause problems.....clonazepam, metoprolol, Wellbrutrin generic and oxycodone......they are like sugar pills, once put back on non TEVA generics all is well, very fearful for those with the generic Wellbutrin by TEVA.....people have gotten suidical .......that is scary ......this company is in Israel....FDA sure not testing efficacy of these drugs from this company..
The right treatment can manage withdrawal so effectively that symptoms are minimized, even eliminated altogether. Opiate Detox And Ongoing Support Can Make All The Difference Addiction afffects the patient physically and mentally disease what requires detox and additional support to heal. The psychological and emotional aspects of addiction often linger well after the body has recovered physically so ongoing care, such as therapy, is highly recommended.
I am a big chicken when it comes to meds. My Dr prescribed me metoprolol 25mgs. I took it one time and by the next morning I ached all over. It felt like I had been beaten. So I'm not taking it. I go see the endo today and am praying it all goes well. I'm scared to death. Ive heard such bad stories about what can happen. I'm at the point now I wish they'd just put me out and fix it all. Wake me when I'm better. Lol.

Thanks, I read an article by a Flute Society (yes, that's right) on the use of Beta Blockers to reduce "stage fright"... it had people like the most of use on this Community: people with direct use/experience or close relationship with others who have direct use/experience. There was one "Clinical Pharmacist" in the group. While I was not interested in most of it it did a good job for me on the differences between Beta types.
I have access to both Toprol XL and Xanax, and I'm curious which one will help mediate some of my stage fright symptoms (I told intend to take them all the time; only when I know I'll be afraid). I'm sure both will help, but can someone recommend one over the other and offer reasons for doing so? Much appreciated.
First of all you have to find a doctor who will taper you off the Fioricet/Codeine as it is a potentially difficult withdrawal process with symptoms stemming from withdrawing both from narcotic and from barbiturate at the same time. Find a good neurologist or a pain doc who is willing to help you with that, not the one who has been keeping you on the drug for years. Good luck to you, my friend.
The nourologist started Betahistine (Betaserc 8 mg at nights) and the cardiologist suggested 25 mg of Metoprolol (Metoral) daily. The Metoral caused a fall in my blood pressure to 80/60 mmhg and I discontinued it. Now I have the sensation of dizziness in my head, difficulty in focusing and concentartion problem. Is this start of the senario from one week ago, related to my heart or my brain? can taking Gemfibrosil, Lipitor and Pioglithazone for 4 months make the condition?
Basically, the only things I can think that could be chemical in origin is I had started consuming caffeine since I started a new job that requires me to work in the early hours of the morning, and I also am taking my Lorazepam 2 MG 3X daily, along with my Beta Blocker Metoprolol Succinate ER and my birth control.
it is probably more than likely a change in the bp medicene that is causing your symptoms. you shouldnt be feeling withdrawal from the drop in your methadone. have you tried taking the bp meds at a different time than the methadone? why did you stop taking the metoprolol? how long ago was your bp medicene changed? you might need more than one bp med. my husband takes metoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide. how did you feel before when you were taking the metoprolol? did you get dizzy?
Nowadays, most methadone providers will allow you to choose the rate at which your dose is reduced. This gives you more control of the process, and lets you keep withdrawal symptoms to a minimum. The entire process should be given plenty of time. Expect at least six months to a year.
A week later the same thing happened and i was in hospital overnight and put on beta blockers for 6 days because my heart rate was 140BPM at one point. The metoprolol got my heart rate down to about 55-60BPM which made me feel fatigued and generally just not like myself. I was then dismissed from hospital as the cardiologist thought it may have been related to my urinary infection and my bloods and echo came back with good results.
